Remove the two sensors. If they are connected to your lighting on the same circuit you may need to replace then with '3-Way Switches'.

    when you are dimming a 3way circuit, only one 3way dimmer is used, the other device is just a plain 3 way switch. Wire according to the diagram and you should be ok.

    Its not a dimmer. Its an occupancy sensor.

Correct, assuming red and black are connected to the breakers in the breaker panel, and white is connected to the neutral/ground buss bar in the breaker panel.

If the test button pops the circuit when you press it, then it should be working properly, If it doesn't then it's not working.

Generally, 3 wires indicate a "3way" switch where you have 2 switches at opposite entrances to a room. Both the Red and Black Can be hot, depending on the other switches position. But, a red wire would normally only be found at the switch box not the light.

What I'd suggest, is that you get a multimeter, and use it to determine the hot wire and the ground/neutral. Once you know which wire is hot, connect the hot to the black lead, and ground/neutral to the white lead of the light. That is the only SAFE manner I can see to resolve this.

SOURCE: i just bought a switch

The key seems to be that you changed wiring in the ceiling box.

I suggest you make a drawing of the wires before and after. Track the route that the Hot wire takes.

The key question is this: Does Hot wire from breaker box arrive in the ceiling box first? Or does it arrive in wall box first?

I think Hot from breaker arrives in wall box first. And from there Hot wire goes to ceiling box ... and from ceiling box the hot wire goes to other plugs in room. If this is true, you will be one wire short for installing fan control switch.

I always make a drawing of existing wires before starting, so I can put it back the way it was. It sounds like you got a good handle on which wire goes where.

We used to solve the one-wire-short problem by making a simple project bigger. Figure out which direction ceiling joist run. See if you can slide fish line from fan ceiling box over to wall. If that works. Over at the wall, chop small hole in ceiling so you can feed wire up to fish line. Pull wire over to ceiling box. Next, staple other end of wire along ceiling over to location above wall box. Chop another small hole so you can feed wire down to wall box. And then install beautiful crown molding to hide the mess, and paint the room so you need new furniture.

SOURCE: Seeking the CWL1420P wiring and assembly instruction sheet

dedbf2b.jpg

The sell sheet for this product shows this is a NEMA-14 Twist lock plug rated for 120V - 240V wiring.

To wire the plug:
G is for ground W is for Neutral
The hot wires connect to X and Y
This is simple for 240V ... your red and black wires connect to X and Y, the ground to G, and the white neutral to W

For 120V circuit, the G ground and W white neutral remain the same. I think the black hot wire is X.

A simple tester in the receptacle can confirm this before plugging in the twist-lock

Wire occupancy sensor to control receptacle


Your description doesn't explain the circuit, the function of the wires or how the switch controls the outlet and whether the switch is a single pole or two-pole switch. Without such details it is difficult to visualise the circuit.

I advise before you go further to test the sensor in a known good and correctly wired outlet using a length of cable and a suitable plug for the outlet. It is possible the unit is faulty. If it functions correctly on test you will need to understand the circuit and the function of the wires before you rewire it to assure success.

I want to replance a standard wall switch (2 wires: white & black) with a PIR Occupancy Sensor switch


Copy following link for simple walk-thru how to wire occupancy switch
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-occupancy-switch.html

This device is made to replace single-pole switch.
Power to fan: note the horsepower range for device: for example if occupancy switch is rated 1/4 Hp, then it will work for ordinary bath fan. If device is rated for 1/3-1/2 Hp then it is rated for whole-house fan.
Each fan motor will have rating plate showing Hp. Check rating labels for each device.

Installation instructions for a Cooper Wiring Devices OS310U-W-K Motion-Activated Occupancy Sensor Wall Switch, White


LED bulbs with leaking motion sensors tend to flicker as well, more so than CFL. I switched to Cooper style - but now my Cooper OS310u will sense motion - and keep sensing motion almost all the time. If it's in test mode - it will shut off but otherwise it keeps sensing it. This is in a garage - and door open or closed does not seem to affect it. I have the same unit working in my basement just fine.

suggestion - don't try LEDs to solve the problem and yes - it will burn out your CFLs real fast.

Is their a way to adjust the delay time on a 390-6107xx-eg1d motion sensor light? If I stand still it cuts out in 3 seconds


There is a switch on the front that allows for different times before shutdown. Also there is a smaller dial beneath the panel that lets you adjust the sensitivity. Try adjusting it to be more sensitive ( + ) so that you are seen and then the timer should kick in.

I have a stairs with a switch and a bulb on each floor and i need to replace them with a wall pir sensor on each floor i need the wiring diagram


I answer questions for free.
I know electrical wiring.
I am unsure about a few things in your question.
Are you wanting to know how to wire a product you purchased?
Are looking for a wiring diagram to see if you can do what your want?

1) Is your circuit a 3-way circuit with 2 switches controlling both lights?
2) Or are there 2 different circuits where each switch controls one light?

Here is a Leviton manual with wiring for occupancy sensors:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Leviton-IPP0R-1LW.pdf
If you want sensors to replace 3-way switches, you need a control sensor and a remote sensor.
